Degree: Mathematics (Bachelors) - Cambridge University

MyTutor guarantee

I am a third year undergraduate at Cambridge University studying maths and physics. Whatever your age or ability, I look forward to helping you achieve and surpass your targets and gain a deeper understanding of the subject.

Although throughout school I was usually able to grasp new concepts quickly, this meant that I spent a lot of time helping my peers and so have experience teaching the same material I will be teaching you.

The Sessions:

Naturally, the sessions will be tailored to you individually as everyone has their own preferred learning style and we will work together to find one that suits you and helps you progress the fastest.

Although I will primarily be helping you to improve your exam grades and understand the core material, I will also give you a deeper understanding of the underlying principles and concepts behind the material which I believe are very important to at least be aware of, even at earlier stages.

Finally, should you be considering studying maths at higher levels, I will be happy to help you decide whether it is for you and to assist with personal statements and university entrance if it is!

### Given that y = x^4 + x^(1/3) + 3, find dy/dx

We use the rule that if y = x^n then dy/dx = n*x^(n-1) which is valid whether or not n is an integer.  We also use that differentiation is a linear operation, which means that we can differentiate term by term in the expression for y. Noting that 3 = 3*x^0, we therefore have dy/dx = 4*x^3 + ...

Noting that 3 = 3*x^0, we therefore have

dy/dx = 4*x^3 + (1/3)*x^(-2/3) + 0
